Scarcity is not a mindset but a lack of love.
It is a symptom of the wound of separation that is passed down the mother line. It is the way that the collective wound of patriarchy is transmitted into our bones through thousands of years of building a world idolizing the rational, provable and profitable.
Scarcity is a lack of connection, primarily to the elemental feminine soul, but mostly also it is a disconnection from love and the source of life itself. Nature. The earth. Our natural world we are meant to be a part of.
One of the major symptoms we experience through the influence of the death mother culture is scarcity. A scarcity of internal resources, a scarcity of feeling connected to love, nourishment and trust in the nature of life itself.
It is a symptom of a broken heart.
This culture shames very real and deep human needs and desires. In the presence of the death parent we forget about them even though we are told that our life is about having our needs and desires met. Which ones? The ones of our soul? The ones that will please this death parent culture?
There is cultural shaming of trauma even though it is culture itself that is perpetuating it through this very disconnection.
There is a shaming of the deep feminine, and thus a denial of how our culture treats children and yet all are supposed to have natural confidence and radiate love and light.
There is a looking away from how this deep hunger we have created through a capitalism that feeds our shadow while raping the Earth and assuming she will heal herself.
We look away from the reflection Mother Nature is showing us each and every day.
Any truth about this is brilliantly placed in a box and called “alternative” or “new age.” Or the feminine is labeled as chaotic or crazy, diagnosed with insane labels that were birthed out of the patriarchal system desperate to keep its place.
Yes. Freud had written a paper about all the symptoms of sexual abuse that he was finding in his community and when he was threatened with being thrown out of the inner circle of powerful men and thinkers (who were the abusers of their daughters). He withdrew his paper and wrote a new one, describing all these symptoms of women as “hysteria.”
Yet, another way Athetna turns Medusa’s head into a ring of snakes, sending her away to the insane asylum where no one every wants to go or look.
This wound of scarcity lives in each of us if we live in the modern world.
It is not a mindset we can fix with positive thinking. In fact, that perpetuates the problem because if you cannot wrangle your mind and get your bank account to prove that your mind is on the up and up, then there must be something wrong with you. You have not extended the protestant work ethic into your mental structure enough.
We cannot solve the scarcity of love and real nourishment we hunger for in our hearts with the rationality of our minds. It is our minds, disconnected from the rest of our being that got us here in the first place. That is the recipe of insanity, doing the same thing over and over and accepting different results.
There is nothing wrong with feeling needy for love and nourishment. Most often, it is even our own love and nourishment we are the most cut off from. It is here we can actually heal the divine and rediscover the bridge to a place where we can tap into love and compassion, soul nourishment, nature as a healing mother and the prosperity of spirit we long for.
Scarcity is not a mindset issue, but a heart one.
More love. Not less.
